If your into the Star Wars Hot Wheels and want the Target Exclusive 5-Pack its now up for sale on both Target.com and eBay (Target is seller) for $18.00 each plus shipping.

Found the Star Wars Hot Wheels display box at my local Texas Toys R Us today. I didn't buy them as I don't collect these myself, but took some pics while at the store. Check out the display box above and for more photos click on through to our Facebook Page.

Star Wars Galactic Defense has been released today and is now available for Amazon Kindle, Android, iPad, iPhone, & iPod touch devices. The game itself is free, but it does offer in-app purchases. For the full details head on over to StarWars.com.

A new StarWars.com Originals: Best Star Wars Monsters video has been posted over at the Star Wars Youtube Channel.

"In this installment of the StarWars.com 10, we’re picking the best creatures of Star Wars, from Tatooine terrors to Hoth horrors. For this list, we're focusing on monsters from the Star Wars films and Star Wars: The Clone Wars only, ranking them on design, impact, and scare factor."

While I was on vacation, our friend Jayson from Yakface let me know that he found a new variation on the Black Series #29 Wedge Antilles figure. So I tracked one down today at Target and took some pics of the change. So what is the change you ask? Hasbro has changed the color of his hair, eyebrows, and eyes from brown to black. You can check out the comparison photo above or check out the pics on the figure's page.

The Power of the Jedi Lando Calrissian (Bespin Escape) figure was released back in 2000 and packed on a collection 1 card. The overall sculpt looks good, but not a fan of the pre-posed stance, as it really limits this figure. Lando has 6 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Waist, and Hips. He includes a Blaster Rifle.

Variations:
• Card back# 571100.0300.
• Card back# 571100.0400.
• Light skin tone.
• Dark skin tone.

EA has announced that Star Wars: Battlefront is coming Holiday 2015 and will be a first-person shooter. Can't wait to play it!

Found these at my local Texas Toys R Us this morning. They were $9.99 each.

Lots of fellow collectors sending in emails saying they found the Target Exclusive Black Series Imperial Shadow Squadron Pack at their local stores today. I missed out on these when they went on sale online, a few weeks ago, but located them via the Target "Find in a Store" tool we mentioned earlier today and picked a few up at my local store.

Was hoping when I returned home from my 10 day vacation I would find plenty of Star Wars Rebels toys on the pegs and shelves. But when I stopped at Walmart, Toys R Us, and Target on the way home from the Airport there was barely anything new at retail since I left.

The only new items I found at retail today was some Rebels Role Play items and the Hero Series Millennium Falcon Vehicle at Walmart.

Wrapping up my vacation in Rome and tried to track down some Star Wars Toys while I was there. The only store I seen with Star Wars Merchandise was the Disney Store.

They had no Star Wars Rebels 3.75" scale toys, but had plenty of everything else including The Black Series 6" (Wave 4), Black Series 3.75" (Wave 4) and even some of the Limited Edition Darth Vader Statues.

I snapped some pictures with my iPhone and uploaded them to our Facebook Page if you want to check them out.

Hmm barely any Star Wars Rebels toys in Milan Italy as well.

While traveling through Milan Italy last week, I stopped by a few toy stores that I found, including the Disney Store. These stores had pretty much just LEGO and Role Play toys. No signs of the Rebels 3.75" scaled toys at all. Disney did carry the Hasbro 12" Inch 6-pack that is exclusive to Target in the states though.

I posted some photos from the Disney Store in Milan on our Facebook Page if you want to check them out.

On vacation and had a interesting find while at the Amsterdam Airport in the Netherlands last week. I came across some Black Series Wave 5 figures at a toy store in the Airport. Was nice to see some newer figures over here. I will be back in the states very soon.

Just a reminder that Star Wars Rebels: “Fighter Flight” will air tonight on Disney XD, October 20th at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT. Be sure to check your local listings.

Now that Star Wars Rebels products have been available at Toys R Us for over a month or so, I have noticed one thing at my local stores. They are not selling very well. This includes products from Hasbro, JAKKS Pacific, and etc.

To prove this, I have been keeping a close eye on the Star Wars isles at my local Toys R Us stores for the past 4 weeks. They have had full pegs and shelves of (currently available) product, not to mention the cases upon cases of Star Wars Rebels product stacked above the toy isles. Nothing seems to sell and the overstock above the isles just keeps on growing.

Just stopped by another Walmart on my way home and I bumped into a Hasbro Representative in the Toy Department. She had a Hasbro Badge and Binder and was going through the Transformers section when I approached her. I proceeded to ask her when we could expect to see the new Star Wars Rebels and Black Series Toys in stores. She said she was a bit puzzled as well on why the new product has not made it to stores yet. She then stated that she has been in 6 Walmart and 2 Toys R Us Stores since last week and none of the stores had any of the newer Hasbro Star Wars toys on the floor or in their stock rooms. She then suggested to try HasbroToyShop.com for the newer products.

So the question is where is all the new Hasbro Star Wars product? Hopefully it shows up soon!

Stopped by my local Walmart today and noticed a new Star Wars Rebels Product End-Cap in the Toy Department. Still no sign of any new Hasbro Rebels, Mission Series, or new style Black Series figures though. You can click the image above to check out both sides of the End-Cap. If you want to see larger pictures check them out on our Facebook Page.
